As normal in most recreational area spots the rent isn't cheap, however just by having my laptop with wifi I was able to save about $50 and only had to drive two blocks. Most motel/hotels have wifi and I had pulled into a Best Western that was on the main road and it was booked solid except for the room I needed, which is for the disabled. The price was quite pricey for about 6 hours sleep I had time for so I pulled out the laptop, started her up, and I picked up the wifi from the motel and looked for other places. Found a place two blocks away that was $30 cheaper and drove over there. I told the clerk that I had AAA, AARP, Government ID, anything & everything and what was the best price. She gave me $20 off more than what it said online and I grabbed it.
The Jasper Ridge Inn is about 2 blocks off the main road and is very nice newer motel that has everything you want except a pool. There is a Brewery Pub almost directly across the street that not only made the best beer I have EVER tasted, they had a huge menu and the food was also the best of had at a place that had the name brewery in it.
Back to the motel. The rooms are large enough and very clean. They do have a continental breakfast which is what you'd expect, and the staff (all 3 shifts) were very pleasant and knowledgable. Another point is since it is a couple of blocks from the main road it is very quiet.
You could drive to Marquette about 25 miles away to find something just a bit cheaper though I don't think you could have gotten anything nicer for what I had to pay. Funny thing was when I was leaving I found out the same people that owned the Best Western own the Jasper Inn also! Enjoy the U.P. of Michigan!
